I've been holding tight to a massive secret for the last couple of weeks, but I can stop biting my tongue and let you guys know - I have just been added as a Bernina Textile Artist on the Bernina Australia website. You have got no idea how amazingly exciting this is for me (well, maybe you do really) - there has been a lot of happy dancing around the house, and it has been pretty hard to wipe the smile off my face recently :o)
When Bernina called a few weeks ago to ask if I'd be interested in becoming a Bernina Textile Artist, I honestly had no idea what they were talking about to start with. I think I probably came across as a bit of a stuttering idiot to be honest. After that amazing phone call, I jumped onto the website to check out who they have on board as textile artists, and nearly fell off my chair (Tula? Amanda Murphy?) and instantly started wondering why the hell they wanted me there (and I'm secretly still wondering, but I guess I'll get over it!) As a few of my Instagram peeps have mentioned recently, I need to start believing in myself more - if this doesn't do that, I don't know what will :o)
I've always shared the love I have for my Bernina QE440 here on the blog, so I'm absolutely freaking thrilled to be officially in partnership with Bernina. Apart from my profile being up on the Bernina website (!?!?!), there is a possibility I will be teaching/demonstrating for Bernina at quilt shows around Australia next year. SO EXCITING!!!!
I'm off to do more leaping around the house in a decidedly ridiculous manner ;o)
